Fit and fine, Pawar discharged from hospital
Pune : Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar was discharged from a hospital here on Wednesday. Doctors said all his medical tests were normal.
 
Pawar spent a little more than three days at the Ruby Hall hospital after he complained of exhaustion and breathlessness. He appeared cheerful and rejuvenated on his discharge.
 
Doctors attending to him have advised complete rest to the 76-year-old for a week, but he shot back saying he couldn't sit in one place for too long.
 
"I have tours lined up for the next two months without a single day off... Let's see how I can take rest. I hate sitting in one place too long," Pawar told reporters.
 
He is expected to go to Mumbai later by a special helicopter, party officials said.
 
After persistent rumours of his "death", an amused Pawar released a video on Tuesday showing him in the hospital room chatting away happily with his family and party leaders.
 
Later, he tweeted news of his good health and expressed his gratitude to people and party activists for their concern.

Twitter curtails ad pop-ups for its VIP users
New York : Micro-blogging website Twitter has stopped, or significantly reduced, the number of ads it displays, in a bid to ensure its "VIP" users stay engaged with the service.
 
Playing around with the idea since September, the micro-blogging company has made Twitter an ad-free, or nearly ad-free, experience to a small group of some of its most prominent and active users, Re/Code reported on Tuesday.
 
Twitter selects the no-ad or low-ad group by a variety of criteria, including the volume and reach of the tweets they generate.
 
Twitter representative Will Stickney said: "We are constantly looking at constraints and adjustments to optimise which ads are shown and how often."
